Experience Aerobatics Outside the Airplane
Mike and Marilyn Mason moved to Sequim, WA seven years ago from Santa Paula, CA. Their 450 Stearman also came up from Santa Paula and the big red biplane has become a familiar sight in the Sequim/Dungeness area. Mike started wing walking and flying Stearmans as a teenager in 1983. Now 10,000 flying hours later he still loves sharing the Stearman experience. Marilyn enjoys wing walking and preparing others for their first step out.
Our full day course involves developing wing walking skills by repetitive climbs from the cockpit to the upper wing rack and along the lower wing. Before we ever start the engine; every step, move, and handhold will be loaded into your muscle memory. Much more than a "thrill ride" we train wing walkers towards a professional level, safety is stressed and fun is assured.
Also instructing/flying wing walkers is long time airshow performer Lee Oman. Flying with performers such as Jimmy Franklin and Eddie Andreini, Lee Oman has been pleasing airshow crowds for years performing wing walking, motorcycle to airplane transfers, and crashing though burning walls. Marilyn Mason and Marion Wagner both honed their wing walking skills under the supervision of Lee. Marilyn and Marion both enjoy coaching new wing walkers in technique, hand signal communication and safety.
